SUPERFLEX – FREE BEER Atlantic Festival & #SocialSaturday2018 Special

13th October 2018 @ 8:00 pm

SUPERFLEX – FREE (open source) BEER, Atlantic Festival & Social Saturday 2018 PARTY

Saturday 13th Oct 8.00pm til late (artist talk 8.30pm)

Join us for an artist’s talk, DJs, dancing and the launch of #FREEBEER, from Plymouth’s new community-owned brewery, Billy Ruffian’s.

8.30pm – Artist Talk – SUPERFLEX

DJ Simon Scullion and live printing from Kiss and Bite Letterpress.

The team behind the brewery has been working with artist collective SUPERFLEX (founded in 1993 in Copenhagen by Bjørnstjerne Christiansen, Jakob Fenger and Rasmus Nielsen) as part of the Atlantic Project to bring locally-brewed, fresh and fine beer to the city’s brewing fans.

The SUPERFLEX group have developed FREE BEER version 6.0 (the Atlantic brews) as part of their long-term open source, free to copy, community brewing project. And all the profits from the Billy Ruffian’s batches will returned to the community in Plymouth. Freedom here is about a lack of ownership and open distribution. They say “FREE BEER is a beer which is free as in free speech, not in the sense of free beer.” However, you can have one bottle free on us for as long as stocks last!

In partnership with Empowering Places Plymouth, the Real Ideas Organisation (RIO), City College, Summerskills and local folk and we’re delighted to bring you the Billy Ruffian’s Brewing Co. brew for the very first time. And the first bottle is actually free!
